A History and Genealogy of the Davenport Family 1086-1850
This book and its companion "Supplement to a History and Genealogy of the Davenport Family 1086-1850" is mentioned in a footnote to a book titled "The Early History of the Davenports of Davenport" written by T.P. Highey M.A., F.S.A. (Scot.) and published in 1960 by the Chetham Society of Manchester, England.
The footnote (on page 1 of the book) reads as follows:
For existing printed accounts of the Davenports of Davenport see Ormerod (Helsby), iii, pp.61-9; East Cheshire, ii, pp. 378-88; and also the only history of the family, as such, by Amzi Benedict Davenport, 1851 with supplement in 1876 - a very unreliable book for the pre-1500 period.
